Photography – Miniature Effect Photos

Just for fun, I used a couple of old photos of Edinburgh that was taken last year to create a miniature effect look using Photoshop.

This was done in Quick Mask Mode with a Reflected Gradient to mark the area in focus and then used Lens Blur to make the background out of focus.

To finish it off I did some adjustment in the levels, colours and saturation to get a more artificial look.

Panorama Photography – Scheveningen Beach

I was recently looking at my old holiday photos of Holland taken from last year and noticed that a few photos that I had taken of the beach could be unintentionally stitched together to make a wide image.

I had my Canon Ixus 75 compact camera during the holiday. On that particular day I stood in the pier of Scheveningen and casually took several consecutive photos of the nice scenery.

In Photoshop, I used Photomerge automation to stitch the photos together and used the stamp tool and healing brush to clean up some of the visible seams. The images were then enhanced using the following adjustment layers: Levels, Curves, Photo Filter, Colour Balance and Hue & Saturation.

*Note – Images will require scrolling on low resolution monitors.
